Who should fill the pending vacancy on the Lacey City Council?
We need very good people in government, right now. We should always want the best qualified and we usually have some transition time for qualified people to grow into their jobs but, not now, not next month or next year. Today we have real issues that need to be addressed critically, with informed risk taking and the refinement of broad experience. We are fortunate to have the best qualified, ready to go, candidate.
Jon Halvorson is the best choice and best prospect to occupy a Lacey City Council seat.
As former mayor he has the ability to pull the council together, even on thorny issues and knows the details of city administration.
Since he left the council he has been an active citizen leading with service clubs, community wide ballot initiatives and service organizations. His networking is 360 degrees and solid. Think of others that think themselves contenders, which of them even begin to compare?
Most of them, while of quality, aren’t reasonable comparisons to Halvorson and have far less experience in pulling people together and driving programs to conclusion.
Jon Halvorson will be an anchor for the council; an informed, and creative asset for Lacey. He is the best prepared and at age 65, he is sharply focused, tuned to the Lacey community and specifically defined in his ambitions.
Jon Halvorson — none better.
